30-Story, 83-Unit Mixed-Use Condo Tower Rises to Fourth Floor at 200 East 95th Street, Upper East Side

YIMBY last brought you an update on the 30-story, 83-unit mixed-use building under development at 200 East 95th Street, at the corner of Third Avenue on the Upper East Side, when rebar was rising from the foundation in March. Now, the structure is four stories above street level and quickly rising, as seen in a photo by Tectonic via the YIMBY Forums. The 317,664-square-foot tower, dubbed The Kent, will eventually stand 367 feet above street level. It will feature 13,225 square feet of retail space on the ground and cellar levels. The apartments, which will be condominiums ranging from two- to five-bedrooms, should average roughly 3,000 square feet apiece. A list of residential amenities can be found in our last report. Extell Development is the developer, while Beyer Blinder Belle is behind the design. Completion is expected sometime in 2017.

445-Key Hard Rock Hotel Under Development at 159 West 48th Street, Midtown

Over the weekend, it was revealed, by the New York Post, that Extell Development is partnering with Hard Rock International to build a Hard Rock Hotel at 151-159 West 48th Street, located mid-block between Sixth and Seventh avenues, near Times Square in Midtown. Now, a rendering and additional details have been released in a Curbed NY report. The hotel tower will boast 445 rooms, a lobby lounge, a restaurant and bar, a rooftop lounge, and an underground speakeasy-style establishment. The hotel will also feature iconic music memorabilia, like many Hard Rock locations do. The 13,153-square-foot site is currently occupied by a seven-story parking garage and a five-story tenement building. Permits were filed to demolish the garage in February. The assemblage can accommodate 180,336 square feet of commercial development as-of-right. Additional air rights can be acquired elsewhere on the block and from around the district, as the site sits within the special Times Square zoning district.
